    It this was a heads up that their health care would be dropped, if the Dems stay in power, than I see no problem with it. Why shouldn't they have this knowledge, before voting.

    Are you kidding me?

    I am against Obama-care (that's another thread topic entirely) but the bottom line is - what this man did was illegal. Period. If I got a polical 'threat' with pamphets with my paycheck stub? I would own that restaurant.

    Do YOU want someone shoving their politics down your throat with the threat of losing your job? That is OK with you?
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I'd like to see this catch on for both sides all over the country. We'd all get good free food and the world could see that we all still break bread together.

    No one being forced to vote for anyone.

    Re: McDonald’s Workers Are Told Whom to Vote for

    I was sent an email as were other parishiners of our diocese of the Catholic Church by a decon that didn't name any names, but indicated we should know which candidate in the 2004 presidential election we should vote for as one was "for" abortion. Not only does a nonprofit organization have no business being involved in politics, but to actually say Kerry was "for" abortion was blatantly wrong. I made it know that such an email was not acceptable as it was not true, and I was insulted.

    I think we'd be surprised how many businesses and churches try and shove their political choices on their employees or parishiners. Many just don't know any better.

    Yes implied political fallout from a poor choice in voting.
    Not from the employer himself.

    Even if all the McDonalds workers voted Republican, the rest of the state could vote Democrat and the results would not favor the owner.

    He's stating what he thinks will happen if Republicans don't get elected, he's giving his opinion to his employees but there are no employment consequences, so it doesn't matter.
    Besides this kinda crap goes on in other, "protected" areas of employment.

    He has no idea which way they will vote, it doesn't matter.

    Now if he was docking their paychecks to support a particular political group, you'd have a good point, but we aren't talking about a unionized work force.

    what he did is against the law, and he is trying to 'influence' those working for him, with a barely hidden threat to their financial wellbeing...how can you honestly support this?
